5 Rules to Follow to Land That Dream Job…Or Special Someone (Whichever Comes First.)
Graduation from college is a time of celebration. It can also be a time of absolute terror, especially for those who still have to face the Big Bad Wolf that is the job market. Nothing is more humiliating or self-defeating than being turned away from a job opportunity that you had your whole heart set on. Nothing that is except for being turned away from a potential love interest that you had your whole heart set on…
Being rejected from a job makes you feel just as low as being rejected from a date. How many “break up” emails have you received from HR that read, “We’ve gone with another candidate,” or in other words, “We have feelings for someone else”? How many phone calls with potential employers have ended with “though you have impressive credentials, we feel that you do not fit our criteria at this time,” or in other words, “it’s not you, it’s me”?
It is not foolish or outlandish to compare the potential job pool to the potential dating pool. People are accepted or rejected in both situations based on very similar criteria. If you have scoured your brain for reasons as to why you are still “economically single” and still come up empty handed, maybe it is the way in which you COURT your potential job that needs an up in its game.
